XXXXX XXXXX : can you confirm that the APS is passing voltage and simply not clicking
XXXXX XXXXX : Is the unit trying to spark - if not then still probably the APS too.
XXXXX XXXXX : If replacing the APS and a new diaphragm in the water flow switch may cost £150-£200 for the both
Hi Andrew, that is what I was told by the plumber appointed by the letting agent ...
Who is recommending a new boiler ...
XXXXX XXXXX : who will, of course, get his cut too
XXXXX XXXXX : You may want to find someone else local and get a second opinion
XXXXX XXXXX : I don't know why he was saying it needed a new PCB, I have an Alpha boiler that is 15 years old and I have only had to replace the hot water flow switch - £25 over 15 years is not bad
Customer: Hi Andrew,
Customer: i asked plumber, that as the property is under offer, and the new buyer wasn't interested in a new boiler, then I needed the job to be as cost effective as possible as it will soon be sold.
Customer: he was very reluctant to start the job without doing the PCB as well, as he couldn't test it, and "sometimes the valve is connected directly to a capacitor on the board"?
Customer: i have an uneasy feeling that the repair was priced to be close to the cost of a new boiler, and hence put me under pressure to do a new installation?
Customer: gas Cert was done end of last November, but now there a "leaks around the manifold too"?
